Practical Information

The meeting will be held at the Grand Hotel de Rose in Scalea, Italy. All the participants will be lodged at this hotel.

The most convenient way to arrive to Scalea from abroad is to fly to Napoli or Roma and then ride a train. It is also possible to fly to Lamezia Terme (South of Scalea).

From Napoli Capodichino airport you can easily get to the Napoli Centrale station by taking a bus of the company Alibus. The bus stop is located in front of the main exit of the airport: just follow the indications. The airport is quite small you will have no problem in finding the Alibus. Buses depart every 20 minutes from 6:30 am to 11:30 pm daily. The ride costs 4 euros and tickets can be bought on board (3 euros if you buy them at the journal stand in the airport). It takes about 20 minutes to reach the station.

If you take a taxi from the airport to Napoli station there is a flat rate of 16 euros. You should tell the driver that you want the flat rate ("tariffa predeterminata" in Italian) before you enter the taxi and make sure the taxi driver in NOT using the taximeter. There might be charges for piece of luggage put in the trunk.
